Can you sell a house with a broken boiler?

Although there is not a legal obligation for a home to have a completely functional boiler system before it can be sold, we still think you should get your boiler repaired or replaced, and there are many reasons why, which we cover in this blog.

My boiler has stopped working, is it still possible for me to sell my house?

There are no legal requirements to sell your property with a faulty boiler, but our heating professionals advise you to disclose issues with the new buyer. This may lead to a decrease in the value of your house, but it only decreases based on how much it will cost the homeowner to get it replaced.

Some may consider the lack of a working boiler a benefit, especially if they want to fully refurbish the entire property, while many prefer a fully working boiler. This is mainly because they will have one less problem to worry about. If a home lacks a functioning boiler, it can raise other concerns prompting possible purchasers to back out of the agreement.

How much value does a new boiler add to a home?

A new boiler may increase the value of your home by up to £9000, and for a better boiler model, it should not exceed £2000. This makes installing a new boiler much more beneficial than upgrading your heating system or if you are thinking of installing new double glazing.

Is the boiler inspected by a surveyor?

When selling a property, a surveyor does not examine the boiler. They could enquire about the boiler and find out when it was last maintained. A Gas Safe registered engineer is required to service all gas boilers.
